I've included everything I use to run my Star Readers Program in this Practice, Play and Read Packet!
Each week I give my students 5 new words to work on at Word Work Tubs. My kiddos add the 5 new words to their word rings, which stay in their reading baskets.
|I simply cut off one column each week and the kids cut these apart, punch a hole (little fine motor workout :) ) and add them to the binder ring.|
|During the week they will play Roll, Read and Write, several group and partner games, and at the end of the week, I'll assess them on the 5 words of the week. After 4 lists, my kiddos will have practiced and played with 20 words!|
After I assess them for fluency, they earn a star on one point of their Reading Star! After filling up the Star, they move to the next 100 sight words and a second Reading Star.

What are the expectations in your district? at your school? in your classroom?
I'd love to read your comments!
